We were away for 5 days, visiting Maine and people we love. Aunties, cousins, a puppy dog, and grandparents — does it get any better? Jameson brought dress up (which he wanted to wear every day), got a new “big boy” car seat, tried his hand at dunking for apples (and got thoroughly water-logged in the process), and played golf all day long at his Papa’s house. William got late birthday gifts (staggering presents really should happen every year; isn’t it way fun?), went out alone for sushi with Daddy (turns out he doesn’t love chunks of raw fish the way his brother does), and got to hand out candy on Sunday night with Jameson (the two of them sitting on a bench by the door, looking out the window? Adorable.)

We had fun.

We also managed to fit adventure into our drives: on the way there, Ryan almost ran out of gas, and we were driving down New Hampshire country roads late at night, hoping for a gas station. On the way back, I helped out by driving for a couple of hours — except that one of those hours, I was on the wrong highway, heading in the wrong direction. Lot of help I am.

But we got home.

I love coming home.

And I don’t care how local and organic the restaurants in Burlington are, I’d rather eat at home. (My local, organic Swiss chard is just as good.)

    There is NOTHING so sweet as coming home. And I have a question about Jameson’s new big boy car seat. What do you have or at least what style? Liam can BARELY fit in the infant one anymore. I don’t know if it’s best to get another like Sophia’s or move EVERYONE up one, which would mean a new one for Asher. Just curious!

    Thank you for not mentioning that at nana nene s house Jameson got regular choc. milk and from the freezer non home made little pancakes for each breakfast, Oh except for the bagles – and the other food stuff that I know you would not let him have at home. You are so great at being a go with the flow mom. Loved having everyone here, such a treat for me. I’ll call when I get SKYPE hooked up again. for some reason it asked me for my password and I never even knew I had one. People have always just called me and it pops up but not these days. I noted that the tea set did not make it again.

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on every time a comment is added I
    recieve four emails with the same comment. There has to be a means you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
